Our brain and bowels are under examination in exhibition Mind the Gut at Medical Museion. In newly restored basement rooms, the exhibition focuses on the complex relationship between mind and gut through a thought-provoking blend of science, art and history
Brain, gut feelings, identity, bowels, bacteria, microbiomes. All these things are brought together in the new exhibition Mind the Gut
The exhibition shows how doctors, scientists, patients and artists have tried to study and treat the complex relationship between mind and gut. It is a puzzle that has occupied us for millennia, and which is increasingly a focus of contemporary science, fashionable lifestyle trends, and vigorous societal debates about the nature of health and treatment.
This catalogue brings together a series of new texts researchers, medical doctors and museum staff who have contributed to the exhibition.
